Are Ivy League Schools Worth It?

My experience Ivy League Schools

“Are ivy league schools better?” “Are these schools worth it?” These are some of the questions I receive from young people who want to know about my experience. Therefore, I decided to do a video on the topic.

I attended Dartmouth for undergrad, and the University of Pennsylvania for law school. I loved Dartmouth, and still cherish the time that I spent there. However, I had many problematic experiences during my time at Dartmouth. I did not fully come to this realization until years after my graduation.

I share some of my experiences at Dartmouth and Penn in this video. I also talk about the ways that my identity as a black women and an immigrant played both played an important role in my experience. My experience is my own. I do not intend to speak for any groups through this video. Rather, I only intend to shed some light on my experience for the sake of those who would like to hear from someone they identify with.

How to do Well in College: Pre Law College Advice

https://youtu.be/imXgj88imUg

Many have asked how to do well in college with law school in mind. Making yourself attractive to law schools is not just about what you do as it but how you do it. Law schools want to see applicants who are passionate and driven, but also detail oriented and aware. Admissions committees want to be able to make sense of your academic and extracurricular endeavors in order to get a clearer picture of you and your goals. Therefore, begin to think about your choices in college within the context of your long term goals.

No matter what your interests are, the admissions committee wants to be able to see why law school is the logical next step in your life and career.

Wondering how to do well in college is the right question to ask, but it is only the beginning. Spend some time learning about your interests and strengths. Think about how these aspects of yourself pull you towards law school, and how they would contribute to the law school community. Thinking along these lines is a great way to begin drafting your law school application in your mind well before you intend to apply.

How to Get into Law School and Have Options

The easiest part of the hardest step.

“What should I do to get into law school?” When I started posting school content on my channel, I got a lot of questions about my own application. People wanted me to share tips and tricks for the application, and so I created this video!

Legal education and practice is still very much a black box. If you do not have lawyers in your family, or close social network, chances are you have no idea what to expect.

Law school is actually VERY hard. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. It is also nothing like what you saw in the movies or on tv. For these reasons, the decision to become a lawyer is not one that you should take lightly. But that is a conversation for another day.

In this video I share an overview of everything you need to know to help you package yourself for law school. I talk about recommendations, personal statements, putting together a coherent application, and…the LSAT.

In some ways the law school application process is very good preparation for law school: it is stressful, time consuming, confusing, exhausting, and extremely detailed. The most important thing to remember when putting together your application is that the people who are reading your application have no idea who you are. And YOU are just ONE out of thousands. Therefore, you will need to stand out…for all the right reasons. Let me show you how!

Is Law School Worth It?

Law school can cost over $200,000 in student loan debt. The first year of law school is mind game. Legal practice is a crucible. Mental health issues like depression and anxiety affect lawyers much more than the general population. So before you decide to go off and become Elle Woods, stop and ask yourself: is law school worth it?

Law School is not for everyone.

Before I made the commitment to go to law school, I did the work. I worked in the areas I was curious about. I conducted informational interviews with lawyers. I worked at a law firm, and saw what a lawyer’s day to day job looked like. I asked my supervising attorneys what they thought about law school, what they did right, and what they wished they had done differently.

Before committing, I took the time to answer this question for myself. Is law school worth it? For me it is because I want to be a lawyer.

This is truly the only good reason to go to law school. Do not go to law school because you want to go into advocacy, you do not need a law degree for that. Do not go to law school because medicine did not work out, and you want the prestige. Do not go to law school because you hit the ceiling at work, and do not know what else to do. Do not go to law school because your parents are making you. The only reason to go to law school is the reason I listed above: because you want to be a lawyer.
